Let the People Speak/Reader Feedback

Folks,

I've been doing this blog for just about a year (11 months).
Should I continue?
If you're a regular reader, or a part-timer, let me know what's working for you. Anything that I could be blogging about that I haven't yet?
Comment all of you, if you can, so that I can get my bearings for the future.

Thanks,

Philip Metres

I didn't know you'd lost your bearings! I hope you continue blogging, though I don't have any suggestions for improvement. I end up here frequently.

Thanks for checking in, Providence, s/he of the Sonic Youth candle...

Well, it's the only blog I read, so obviously I love it. But I do know the blogging thing takes up a lot of time.

Which is the basically the worst and least helpful feedback ever. Sorry.

Happy Pentecost!

I hope you keep blogging. It's not only a good way for me to keep up with you, but it's enlightening too. More punk rock! (j/k)

Keep up the great work Dr. Metres. Sorry that I didnt drop off the DVD to you. Im an idiot, but I hope to have it to you on Thursday. You do a great job of informing us on the Anti-War movement, and I like the mix of protest music and political commentary. Keep it up!

Phil - I often read your blog and I appreciate what you write. I suppose I prefer more about poetry and literary art than other items but probably wouldn't want your (or any) blog to be exclusively literary. I certainly appreciate the items you post about the Palestinian/Israeli concerns. l find those posts insightful. Sometimes the posting is rather long and I have to confess to not going through the whole item. This, of course, depends on how much time I have at that given glance. In all, your blog is thoughtful and thorough. I appreciate it. J. Ross

Thanks for everyone checking in. I'm actually shocked to see that there are regular readers to this blog (even if most of you are my actual non-cyber friends). It's a weird rhetorical situation, at the cyber/mic with the light on one's face, and unable to see in the dark auditorium--whether you're just standing there talking to yourself again.

Ohil,

I concur with everyone here--I like the mix of Middle East/punk/rap/poetics...
